Read transcript for the video 'Making Business Easier for Bar Centrale on Queen' below.
Hi. My name is Sonya.
I run Bar Centrale. a cafe in Campbelltown.
The opportunity came up to buy this place and I had to jump on it straight away.
The previous owner wanted to have the liquor licence and things as well but there was a lot of red tape and things you had to go through.
When Campbelltown Council actually announced the partnership with Service NS, the very next day I rang to see what I could do..
They can help businesses get their liquor licence or start new cafes or restaurants, along with other services as well.
We had a chat, the concierge and myself about what I wanted to do, where I was already at.
Once they understood how I wanted to grow the business, they sent me an email with dot points of all the different things, step by step what i needed to do to get the licence to extend the trading hours.
It's for free! I didn't have to pay anything to have this extra support and encouragement.. Just the one person looking out for me from start to finish.
He checked over the DA before I submitted it to council, as well, he looked at the liquor licence, actual paperwork. Encouraging me the whole way through.
I cried, when I was able to tell him that yes, it had been approved.
Now I got the extended trading hours, along with the licence that gives me so many more things that we can offer the community.
Definitely call Service NSW. Get in touch with a Business Concierge. They will make it so much easier for you.
